Frequently Asked Questions

Using our 33 years of experience to help you further understand Burials

The team at Lee Funeral Home in Nairobi, Kenya is available to answer all your questions. Should you have any inquiries regarding burial services or graveside services which is not reflected in the information provided, we encourage you to call us.

Does my beloved one have to be embalmed prior to burial?

This is a question we hear a lot. Many funeral homes suggest (and may even go so far as to require) embalming if you’re planning a viewing. That’s because they want the experience to be as good as it can be for those in attendance, and proper embalming can ensure the deceased looks as good as possible. But as a general rule, embalming is not necessary or legally required if the body is cared for in a relatively short amount of time. Feel free to contact us should you have any further queries.

Are our beloved ones kept in a different location, other than at Lee Funeral Home?

No. You can rest assured that we do not keep your beloved ones in a different location. We have more than enough storage space in our in-house cold room that has a capacity to handle 36 bodies. Should there be an unfortunate event where we have more than 36 bodies, we have a mobile cold storage unit than can expand to accommodate the bodies that families have entrusted to our care. Contrary to the rumors, we take great care and attention to ensure that if you have chosen us as your preferred funeral home, your loved one is treated with love and care
